I was very mad about it.plus I noticed one of my luggage has been damaged so now I have to buy another one because I can t use it. It was disgusting."

Cons: "For some reason I had to get my seat at the gate and waste extra time for it"

Pros: "Flight was quick, crew efficient"
Cons: "Despite having this flight booked for over a month I was not issued a seat until gate check in and had to sit and wait till they figured out their "overbooked" situation. I had to approach the desk four times because they wouldn't give me any indication of what zone I should line up for, and the desk crew were rude. Ended up being the last to board."

Cons: "Long lines trying to resolve delayed flights. Ni weather issues reported."

Pros: "Everything was great from the check in process to the de-planing in Detroit. When we checked in at SLC the agent used my last name, which showed me the extra mile Delta staff will go to make the travel with them professional and curious. The flight left on time and when we arrived in Detroit our bags were already there waiting for us. Couldn't have asked for more!"

Pros: "Crew was helpful, plane was clean and food is decent"
Cons: "Have to request wheelchair service twice as the receiving staff handing the wheelchair to another company for departure staff. Only one counter handles wheelchair request at each leg. They are so strict with liquids that all baby foods had to put in a separate bin and we had to go to another security point for clearance. It took 2.5 hours to go through all that, that is with wheelchair priority! Boarding was horrible at the gate."

Cons: "Flight was late arriving to George Town due to mechanical trouble. when it did arrive and we got boarded there was another 15 minute delay for more mechanical trouble. There were no meals available for purchase on the plane as they had only stocked the flight for one leg of the trip and not the return leg. We were told at check in that we would have to pick our bags up in Detroit before getting on our connection to Toronto. In fact they were actually checked through. Due to the delays we missed our connection in Detroit. The Delta Agent was rude and did not want to give us a hotel voucher. She also said the next flight she could book us in was 24hrs later. She was unwilling to book us on an earlier flight with a different carrier. After we got her supervisor involved we were given a hotel and booked on an early flight the next day. I would not fly Delta again if I had the choice."

Pros: "We were a head of time for both flight! I never experienced this with delta. It used to be always late. I stopped flying with them for that reason. I was gladly surprised."
Cons: "The seat are very small. We were not comfortable at all."

Pros: "Actually, the entertainment was non-existent. It's a fairly short flight on a commuter jet, so there is no entertainment system."

Pros: "Very friendly and curtious crew made the flight very pleasant"

Pros: "The service on the plane was very nice, the woman flight attendant was great. The drinks definitely helped get my through the deafening flight."
Cons: "I was not aware of how loud the last row on the plane would be, for two hours we had to listen to the roar of a jet engine, it would be nice if there was ear plugs we could be provided for this. Or if we were made aware of this before the flight started."

Pros: "It was cancelled"

Pros: "The fight was delayed but they gave us complimentary drinks on the flight. Nice."

Pros: "Arrived safely Last minute upgrade to first class because people decided not to go due to long delay"
Cons: "4+ hour delay Mechanical issue Sent a different plane but not quick on the turnaround and no staff upon arrival to operate jetbridge"

Pros: "The staff was awesome throughout the entire experience."
Cons: "Some of the carry on people try to bring on board is way too big"

Pros: "My overall experience from booking to checking in was great! Delta provided seat accommodations for me to make flying with an injured knee much more comfortable. Thank you!"

Pros: "He crew was very nice!"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed and there were too many problems at the Columbus airport!"

Pros: "The crew was very courteous and helpful, they seemed to have a positive attitude and worked with passengers like they really enjoyed their job."
Cons: "There was a 3 hour delay outbound and a 9 hour delay inbound. On the inbound flight I was put up in a nice hotel for the day and given a $30 meal voucher. However I missed my connecting flights and had to be put up when I got back to the States. Despite getting in at 10pm I was put on a 5am flight."

Pros: "Crew was attentive and professional."
Cons: "The lady behind me was a bit of a crank / wouldn’t allow me to recline the seat / kept pushing it up. REALLY , that 3 inches was affecting you . SMH"

Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "I wish these airlines would remember that people on the place are PEOPLE. After multiple delays, including one where we sat on a hot plane for over an hour, they did very little to make us comfortable. There's a reason why AA sits right next to United in terms of poor customer experiences"

Pros: "It was as good as one has gotten used to"
Cons: "It was only as good as one has gotten used to"

Pros: "The crew was helpful and fast in turning plane over."
Cons: "Flight delayed from 1015 pm departure to 1135pm, so I had to making my arrival at 1am. Hard are the person picking me up. Despite the fact that they moved my flight they closed the Aa lounge at 10 and kick you out, even though they moved my flight"

Pros: "Unfavourable crew. Pilot was very good and detailed though."
Cons: "The smell on airplane, was not offered any water to drink."

Cons: "A few issues: 1) I was not given seat tgth with my 9 year old and was not helped in finding seats together 2) they lost my bag after I took it through customs and I'm still (a week already) waiting for it."

Pros: "Friendly staff. In-flight entertainment included."

Cons: "We arrived 30 minutes early but then we waited 30 minutes for a gate."

Pros: "Quick boarding and luggage pickup."
Cons: "Mediocre staff. In my experience United is more friendly and welcoming."

Pros: "Entertainment system was great."
Cons: "Seats too small. I mean waaaay too small."

Cons: "The big delay (almost 4 hours) makes me loose my trip to Canada on the same day."

Pros: "As a fat guy, I really like these newly built AA airplanes with huge seats. Two great flight attendants, too (a rare thing this day and age). Better than average coffee for an airline."
Cons: "Terrible turbulence. I know it's not AA's fault, but still, despite how nice the plane and staff were, I was sweating bullets for two hours!"

Cons: "The space between seats are too small, and the seats do not recline enough (very uncomfortable)"

Pros: "The AA app for entertainment works well, friendly crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 90+ minutes, yet they didn't tell anyone until 90 minutes prior to departure. They knew of system delays and should have updated many hours before the flight but they didn't and had us all there very early waiting around doing nothing."

Pros: "Snacks and Beverage"
Cons: "Delays"

Pros: "Always on time and always comfortable."

Pros: "It was very smooth once we were able to take off!"
Cons: "We were delayed in the plane almost an hour with no cool air. They had technical problems."

Cons: "Flight itself was good, but will never book via JustFly again. 2/3 of my flights were cancelled and I was never notified. Then I had to call to reschedule, which took almost an hour. Then they stated they would send my confirmation via email 24-48 hours. 3 days later and the confirmation still never came. SO I had to call again and wait another half hour. No point in booking through a 3rd party for that type of hassle."

Cons: "Dirty food trays trash jammed down it and flight attendant said the she doesn't touch that cleaners doBeing"

Pros: "Everything was great. Slept the entire flight."

Pros: "Great service, good window seat, smooth flight"
Cons: "No music/radio at my seat"

Cons: "Delayed three separate times, American Airlines employees were rude when asked why the flight kept getting delayed. Arrived 3 hours later than expected."

Cons: "We were waiting for 6 hours then our flight got cancelled. We got another flight which is in the second day !! And I am going back to MIAMI on Sunday 7:00 am . What a bad airlines!!"

Cons: "Flight from Ny to Detroit was delayed for 2 hrs. Coming back was worse after multiple delays, they cancelled the flight. they put me on a flight for next day with 2 connections which will reach ny almost 20 hrs later, no aplogises, no hotel room. After more calls put me in another United flight later that night which also finally got cancelled. I had to book a new flight with delta and paid $460 on the spot for that. Still awaiting my refund from American for the return leg which was cancelled and left a lady traveling alone stranded at Detroit airport in the night. Apology or compensation -- forget it, you will never get that! Only now if they can refund my cancelled flight..."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "American has gone to these thin seats so that they can cram more cattle into the back. They are absolutely the most uncomfortable seats I've ever had the displeasure of being forced to sit in, and unless you're willing to pay even more for "premium" seats, you won't even have enough space to sit. I will never, never, ever give American Airlines another penny."

Cons: "I didn't like how we were 20 minutes early yet after 1.5 hours of sitting on the Tarmac that I missed my connection by a few minutes. I wish the crew hadn't falsely informed the passengers onboard that the other planes would be delayed with the communication issue @ Reagan (DC)."

Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "Washington airport grounded our flight for no apparent reason while we were on the runway in Indy about to take off, then didn't tell us when we could expect the delay to end."

Pros: "Finally getting to my final destination and out of DFW."
Cons: "The flight was originally scheduled to take off at 8:20 pm, but due to several delays did not end up getting off the ground until after 11 pm. After being in the air for about 45 minutes we were informed that there were issues with the engine and that we would be turning around and heading back to Dallas. By this point it was after midnight, and although I was appreciative that safely is a priority, there was no communication as to what the next steps were. After landing we were finally told that we would have to deplane, and after we sat around the gate for awhile we were informed that the flight would be delayed until 5 am. Being 12:50 am at this point a hotel would have been nice, but we were informed that AA was "out of hotels" but that if we wanted we could have a $12 food voucher to use at the one restaurant that was open several terminals over. The AA employee assisting in handing out the food vouchers seemed extremely unapologetic about the situation which didn't help with the frustration everyone was feeling. I will not be booking with AA again, and will be passing along my negative experience to family and friends. It is worth spending the extra money on a ticket for an airline that is more reliable with better customer service."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful. Our flight was delayed 3 hours and they did their best to keep all the passengers comfortable and happy."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment to rate"

Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "Delay disorganized staff that was not friendly or helpful lost luggage"

Cons: "Plane out dated . It was sad. Tinny seats. And again they boarded all group 1 at once. And all of group 2 at once. Should of done by so many seats\rows. It was horrible. I wouldn't fly American again. Unless I won a trip"

Cons: "The only reason for the one star, is that there was no entertainment or did on the flight. So those categories didn't apply. For me, in my flight experience, it's to get to where i need to be and not to be entertained. Food and drinks aren't needed, I can get that when i get to my destination."

Pros: "Easy boarding, im about 6'3 so i was a bit uncomfortable being in the middle seat (not airlines fault) overall good first experience."
Cons: "Would have liked to be able to sit by my spouse being my first time on an airplane. Wasnt an option?"

Pros: "As always, the staff was courteous and efficient. I never have any problems when I fly American Airlines. I often book my flights specifically for American Airlines when I can."

Pros: "Made it to LGA"
Cons: "Didn't make it home"

Cons: "Very narrow seats. I am not very tall and my knees were hitting the seat in front of me"

Pros: "I liked the smooth ride, and engaging captain. We didn't hit much turbulence, even if it is uncontrollable. Takeoff and landing was smooth and put my worries about flying to rest."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight delayed 4 hours, AApersonnel at Luis and counter a little rude, seat was broken on plane....waited almost an hour for luggage!"

Pros: "The ease of boarding"
Cons: "Na"

Cons: "Flight cancel, next day 5 gate changes and 5 delays, got home 23 hours late. Some suggest that once you r having a bad experience the airline does not work that hard to make it better, priority given to keeping the other passengers happy."

Cons: "Delay, seats very uncomfortable"

Pros: "This was ok"

Cons: "The lady at the ticket counter was very rude and not helpful at all. Never flown American before. We're told to get our seats at the counter. She was very unhelpful!!"

Pros: "I like the crew, they were very nice all the time"
Cons: "They need to put the airline name that they use. No one at the airport knew about republic airline After I couldn't find republic airline I stopped at American airline and asked them there they told me that I'm flying with them not republic"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "i am missing all my clothes and I have another person things in my suitcase."

Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "No in-flight service"

Cons: "Didn’t get bags transferred from United flight from Washington DC to the flight from Munchen to Athens. We made it to gate just in time. Bags did not. Maybe there is some way to increase layover time On this international flight. Thanks"

Pros: "The flight staff"
Cons: "Not telling us the delays in time"

Cons: "Waited until boarding to give me a seat"

Pros: "Delayed because of weather maintenance and people"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very responsive"
Cons: "The food was very disappointing. Dry fried chicken with rice."

Cons: "My seat didn't recline, no free movies/TV."

Cons: "Very long delay"

Pros: "The crew is kind"
Cons: "UA flights always get delayed and this time I failed to catch my connecting flight to London. I was rescheduled to the flight in the morning of the second day. And when we were heading for London half way, the pilot said some sensors stopped working and we had to come back to Dulles. To be honest, I will never take UA flights anymore, it is just TERRIBLE!"

Pros: "I have absolutely nothing to say good about this airport"
Cons: "We were canceled (our flight in Newark) were herded around like cattle and then left to fend for ourselves .. With no apologies .. We got jumbled around to three different flights until we found one that would fit they try to get us on one flight and boarded in like 45 minutes and there was no way were going to make it manageable us around again , it was awful.."

Pros: "On the way to Chicago I was pleased with the staff."
Cons: "I knew I had a layover in Chicago but what I didn't know was that I would have to sit on a plane for over an hour with no air conditioning. It was incredibly hot and because of this I missed my flight to LA which took off earlier than my ticket said."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "The whole services!"

Pros: "Loading was quick and easy with smiles and greetings from hostesses"
Cons: "No drink service on either flight, dumped on jetway and had to take bus to a gate and then navigate to our new gate. This made short layover time even shorter. I flew United down there and had drink service for that led of flight with them."

Pros: "For all everything was OK"

Pros: "Quick, comfortable, smooth, and pleasant"

Cons: "Uncomfortable, and unsafe, seat - with the bottom sagging badly on the right side at the back. Narrowly avoided having to check my hand luggage through to Nice, France, which would have been the second time on a row! Why, oh, why can't they ENFORCE the carry-on rules that are supposed to limit the size and number, as they do in Europe?! If you're in group 5, forget carry-on."

Pros: "The seats were more confortable. They could be a bit taller for head room but space between seats and the width of seats were very comfortable."
Cons: "The crew seemed very unpleasant. The guy (head crew) was very rude. When asking us to do things he just said it with a tone that was very unneeded. You could tell he didn't want to be there. The lady flight artendant was nice just facially her expressions make her look stand off ish. They talked about passengers to each other in the aisle ways and made comments that "they've talk to this lady each several times and she's not listening". Seemed like private conversation they could try and have."

Pros: "Courteous and friendly employees..helpful"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The flight was late/ delayed over 6 hours. The crew was rude and very unprofessional. This was the worst experience i have ever had flying. I can honestly say I will Never fly United airlines again. I understand that flights get delayed, but when every worker at the flight check in desk, and flight attendants are rude and have a smug attitude as if they don't care then at that point i walk away from ever doing business with you again."

Pros: "Very helpful and attentive from start to finish"
Cons: "Small seats I'm not obease but I am thick I was a lil cramped"

Pros: "No problems"

Pros: "On timing"

Pros: "The personal were mostly very freindly"
Cons: "My carry-on had to go through the scanner a few times and finally had to be checked. The check person was calling out "who's bag" and I did not hear her. She scolded me for not listening."

Pros: "Good crew, polite, professional. Clean cabin."
Cons: "1. No video screens. A/V offered through wifi to PDAs, but no USB charging could limit viewing. 2. Seating is too close. 3. Very limited micro-snacks."

Pros: "Again friendly"
Cons: "Rough flight and technical problems then had to wait another 45 mins on runway to get to the door"

Pros: "Movie streaming over WiFi worked on this flight."
Cons: "Snowboard Bag was ejected very hard onto the belt by airport person. Dented my hard case. There was a gentlemen who saw his guitar being tossed out onto the belt. Very little respect for peoples' luggage."

Cons: "My flight was cancelled. I was notified only a few hours before that my weekend plans were ruined."

Pros: "My seat, I paid extra and had seat with more leg room"

Pros: "It was on time and things went smoothlyi"

Pros: "Flight was on time, everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Flight was too short for a meal but possibly a choice of 2 sandwiches along with the beverage they served would be a nice option? No In-flight entertainment that I was aware of."

Pros: "Seating was good."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Flight canceled. Forced us to stand in a four hour line to re-book. Phone calls not accepted. These incidents happen all the time- it is inexcusable that United handled the situation so poorly!"

Cons: "Actually I never got a flight to Seattle yesterday. My flight was cancelled and was on hold with United for over 2 hours only to have them tell me they could rebook for two days later. They said that was the only option in the whole Midwest on all airlines. I don't believe them. Horrible customer service. Ive had nothing good to say about United. I am supposed to fly through Newark tomorrow to Seattle and I hope that flight isn't cancelled because I've already missed two days of work. I am very displeased right now. No compensation either."

Pros: "So first scheduled flight canceled., I broke land speed records and paid an additional 50 dollars to get booked on an earlier leaving flight. Boom it was cancelled as well. I'm attempting to fly out at creak of dawn today! Still not home! United had alot of work to do! !!!!!"

Pros: "very friendly crew!!!"
Cons: "Very small and uncomfortable."

Cons: "I had to pay to check my bag even though the attendant asked for roller bags to be checked. The suitcase is a carry on (large, but a carry that fits in overhead compartments). I've traveled with it dozens of times and have never had to to pay to check it."

Pros: "Flight attedant interrupted safety instruction three times and made angry expressions because she could not identify Where somepne was listening to music which could be heard slightly during the instruction. If a passenger does not want to listen that's their business. The flight attendant's reaction was distracting and not appropriate. I appreciate the pilots's message but I could not understand it - my hearing is fine."
Cons: "Boarding was fast and efficient."

Cons: "Rude reservationist was not helpful to my son, who was a 1st time flyer & had no idea what to say or do to rectify his situation. When my sister tried to assist, by phone, reservationist refused to communicate with her."

Pros: "Ended up on a direct flight to Detroit on another airline."

Pros: "It was a modern plane"
Cons: "Very cramped. No snacks. Food cost money. Tv cost most. I'm a skinny person and I had very little room to be comfortable. I enjoying flying but this flight was very uncomfortable"

Pros: "Everything on time. Comfortable seating. Friendly stewardess."

Cons: "The flight was delayed and boarding was never posted. We were online checking while having food next to the gate. We missed the flight by 2 minutes and have to fly out 24 hours later, missing a wedding which was the whole purpose going."

Pros: "Crew was great, flight was quick, left right on time and even landed a little early"
Cons: "Limited leg room, but I’m also 6’4”. No food or entertainment options (at least not without paying for it) on the flight but with a budget airline that’s what you expect. Beyond that it was fine"

Cons: "Trip was cancelled. Bought insurance, called to cancel flight, and even though I bought insurance, would not reimburse. Said business cancelled trip was not covered. Will not use this again. What's the point in flight insurance if you can't use it for something as simple as the bus meeting is cancelled? Horrible."

Cons: "By the time you pay for all the "extras" it's no bargain."

Pros: "Nothing made me happy about this, or any of the other flights I had with Spirit on this trip"

Cons: "They charge extra for everything. They charge you to book your seat, they charge you for any kind of bags (carry on or luggage), They charge you to check in at the desk. They charge you for refreshments on the plane. Seats are very uncomfortable."

Cons: "I was told that I could bring my carry-on on the plane for no extra fee and when I arrived at the airport I was told that my bag would have to be an extra $69. If Spirit has a different policy for carry-on than other airlines they should let that be known in advance. I even reached out and called the airline in advance because this was my first time flying Spirit and I wanted to make sure everything would be set."

Cons: "Didn't like the extreme added on expenses. $57 for a checked bag to Seattle. No seat reservation fee going to Seattle. On the return $47 for a checked bag. Had to reserve a seat for the return. The fee started at $18 the website went down and upon getting back online the seat reservation fee increased from $18 to $20 in a matter of 1-2 minutes"

Pros: "We had an hour delay. Staff was great at letting us know and keeping us updated pilots got us there safe, smooth and fast. that's always great!"
Cons: "Hour delay waiting on staff. Seats were not to comfortable."

Cons: "I was told I could not be issued a boarding pass because it was too close to takeoff. I then purchased an outrageously priced one way ticket to get home on another airline. Before taking off on that flight, I received an email saying that my original flight was delayed 2+ hours, even though I had checked the status of that flight up until I walked up to get my boarding pass. This email was sent to me 5 minutes before the delayed flight was scheduled to take off. Spirit said that they could not help me at all and the issue ended up costing me $370. I will not be flying with Spirit ever again."

Cons: "Return Flight on 5/31 / #770 Detroit to Seattle: upon arriving at the Detroit airport learned we had to pay $59 per carry on bag. DID NOT have to do that for first flight from Seattle. Nickel & dimed the whole flight . Paid more than we would have with other preferred airline which we normally travel Impersonal service Broken seat in front of me so that tray did not operate & leg room - what there was of it - very compromised Staff on board are sloppy when giving instructions, especially on the intercom. Need speaking training. Talk way to fast, slur their words. Will NEVER fly Spirit again. You get what you pay for."

Pros: "Waste our whole day not worth it Lots of late and not a qualified staff."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "2 hour delay because hey didn't have any available flight crew"

Pros: "I am glad that our flight did not get cancelled or deleayed"

Cons: "just awful!"

Cons: "After paying $50 for my checked piece of luggage, Spirit employees decided to leave it in Atlanta. I was offered nothing to make it right, except that they would deliver it to me once it arrived the next day. Probably the last time I fly Spirit."

Pros: "The service was great. I needed assistance with a wheelchair and the people who helped me were wonderful ✈️"
Cons: "The 4 hour delay but I realize that sometimes things happen beyond our control"

Pros: "Got in early despite a few minute delay boarding."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful"

Pros: "Flight was smooth quick and on time and I got a good price"

Pros: "Spirit Airlines fools folks with low fares and then gouges wallets with baggage fees. I was disappointed with the SA representative at LGA who was rude and inflexible when I realized that I had not printed out my boarding pass. He made me go to the back of the line after waiting through a long, pre-holiday check in line. Enforcing the rules is one thing, but he was rude and unkind. Flight was left/arrived on time."

Pros: "Good flight on time. I fly a lot - exceptional soft landing. Personable, helpful crew."

Cons: "Due to Fox car rental triple charging my VISA I was instructed to speak to a manager when I returned my rental car. Knowing this would take more time, I arrived 30 minutes earlier to discuss the matter. It wasn't an easy fix. As a result, I arrived at McCarren Airport to check my bag at 10:55 p.m. for an 11:30 p.m. flight. I was told I was to late and would have to take the next flight to Detroit, which wasn't until 8:15 a.m. I pleaded and offered to take my luggage to the plane and carry it to the baggage workers, but it was to no avail. I was booked for the 8:15 a.m. flight to Detroit. I was very disappointed to be informed that it would cost me $99.00 to make the change."

Pros: "The only thing I enjoyed was the economy class seating which gave a little more leg room, however the seats don't recline."
Cons: "I flew from Philly to Las Vegas and then Las Vegas to Atlanta to Philly on the way back. Each time the flights were delayed due to the previous connecting flights inability to be on time. At the airport the gate staff did not give updates for the airline departure. Once aboard the aircraft, the flight crew were loudly carrying on for the entire flight giving little regard for those around them especially since one flight was a redeye flight. I will not be flying this airline again."

Pros: "I had more leg room than I thought I would. Also the window seats were nice. My personal item fit nicely under the seat in front of me too. Flight attendants were wonderful!"
Cons: "A bottle of water cost $3! Come on man :-/"

Pros: "Crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The extra charges to actually use the ticket came to more than the flight."

Cons: "I'm surprise they don't charge for the oxygen in the plane. Every move it's charge including water."

Cons: "We waited over 1 1/2 hours in line to just check our bags. It was terrible, no organization., we were there almost three hours early and just made our flight. No excuse for this needed more staff period or staff that could work a little faster. Someone even gave a staffer money to get her moved up in line. No acceptable."

Pros: "Snacks and liquor options were great! The menu was easy to read."
Cons: "No onboard entertainment such as TVs."

Cons: "-I'd rather pay more upfront than sit thought a 7hrour flight that doesn't even offer complimentary water to its passengers. -lacking reclining seats"

Pros: "I selected random seating and got the 2nd row. Lots of leg room but the sides of the seat were quit constricting"
Cons: "The lga terminal is terrible, a.c was extremely poor, not enough seating, food options are terrible, and communication from the actual gate was worse. It's tucked away in the corner and there wasn't enough seating so I had to sit in another section therefore I could never hear any announcements, even though I gather there weren't many made even with an hour plus delay. Also, I am 6 months pregnant and travel quit a bit for work. It amazes me how flight attendants do not offer to assist with putting up my luggage. I never willingly chose spirit as my airline, I will do anything in my power to fly another but it just so happens this week was drastically cheaper so I had to select your airline and I am definitely not willing to do so again"

Pros: "that I eventually got to my destination"
Cons: "Everything else"

Pros: "The seat was comfortable for an airplane seat and no one sat in the middle seat in my row."
Cons: "Having to wait in line to pay to check a bag, as well as pay to carry on, and then having to wait in a line wrapping around the door in order to give the agent my checked bag was inefficient. I'm not sure if it was a Spirit process or a FLL airport process, but I have to imagine a lot of people missed their flights because of it."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "You should watch the video of the employee harassing a customer on the flight we took. Flight was scheduled to depart at 5:19 we left at 8:45. Apparently the plane was too hot. No communication. Rude employees. No apology. Just horrible. Never again. I only booked this because I had to get to an important event that night at 8 and there were no other flights. Missed the event and had horrible service. Just perfect. First and last timeI will ever fly spirit."

Pros: "The crew on board the plane was nice, gave updates and the plane itself was clean"
Cons: "The experience at the gate was the worst example of customer service I have ever had. The flight was delayed for 3 hours but no one was updating us on anything. The crew was very rude and extremely unprofessional. I'd rather pay the extra money for good service."

Pros: "Everything from the moment we arrived at ticketing/baggage check-in until we hit the ground at home - everything went well. The plane crew were cordial and efficient; the captain even knew how to deliver the right message in a good tone."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "After playing the game and being overcharged for a carry-on (paid for something I was allowed) and having to pay more for a real seat the flight was delayed multiple times and I had to book on another airline (and pay the premium) to get to Detroit. Then it took them 30 minutes to round up my bag making me almost miss the other flight. I won't fly Spirit again"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and no alternatives were given. The experience was terrible ad staff was not helpful."

Pros: "TAKE OFF WAS SMOOTH"
Cons: "LANDING WAS ROUGH AND SUDDEN, HEAVY FOOT ON THE BRAKES"

Pros: "Nothing really. Uncomfortable, small seats, not smooth flying."
Cons: "My suitcase that cost $80 got broken and I am very upset and would like something done about it. It was the one that was put under the plane. The zipper is now broken and it's all tore up and I am not happy and will no longer fly with spirit unless anything is done to resolve this matter."

Pros: "The crew got us home earlier"
Cons: "We got earlier to the gate but no gate to pull the plane in. Then the wait for luggage was terrible. At 12:30am at night to wait 40 min with children is terrible."

Cons: "We boarded and then we were asked to unboard with our carryons. We asked when or if we could reboard. They had no answers. We waited until 2:30am and were reboarded. (3 hour wait) Most ticket holders left out of frustration. Biggest problem was that they wouldn't tell us were our checked luggage was."

Cons: "I understand if the flight is cancelled due to weather conditions, but we were able to get on another flight at the exact same time to the exact same destination, just through another airline. In addition, prior to my cancelled flight I barely received any emails letting me know of the status change and received NO phone text message. Spirit should text every person if a flight is cancelled. Lastly, it has now been 6 full days and no one has reached out about my refund. I requested it at the airport but have not received anything in the mail or via phone call. Disappointing customer service and horrible management."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "the customer service call center is way ineffective, you need to hold over 30 min to get someone on the phone, total disregard to customer flights needs specially when you connect to an international flight, flight cancelation is a nightmare, call center does not answer, the staff is impolite and make the customer feel like dirt"

Pros: "The cost"
Cons: "Charge for certain seats, charge for bags, charge for a soda even on a 4 1/2 hr flight, no perks no reclining seats. Only good for short weekend trips. If you need to pack a bag that cant fit under a seat you would be silly not to fly a dif carrier because cost adds up and the perks still stay at zero."

Pros: "Price of ticketmultiple"
Cons: "Multiple delays"

Pros: "The gate agent was very short and snippy at 5:30 am. So, that kind of makes everyone else in a bad mood. Too bad, because nobody was really awake and was looking forward going to the cold North. She could have made it a more pleasant boarding time..."

Pros: "nice flight, crew was very kind"
Cons: "This flight was nice, but the way Spirit did me for my not flight down will make me never to fly Spirit again. Very disappointed with this Airlines and the way I was treated."
